Manchester City vs Southampton Confirmed Lineups

Manchester City could momentarily go top of the Premier League table with a win when they host a struggling Southampton side at the Etihad today (Saturday).

The record of Pep Guardiola’s men against the Saints last season wasn’t very good, managing draws on both occasions.

Man City were in relentless form last weekend, dispatching local rivals Manchester United 6-3 at the Etihad.

They have since taken that prolific form into Europe, dispatching Copenhagen 5-0 at the Etihad.

The important thing for Man City is to maintain their momentum and get three points to top the table on Saturday. Their position could again change on Sunday if Arsenal can beat Liverpool.

Southampton manager, Ralph Hasenhuttl, is under tremendous pressure ahead of this fixture, with his side languishing in the 16th position.

The Saints suffered their third successive defeat last weekend to Everton, relaying questions regarding the Austrian’s future.

Arriving at the Etihad, where the Saints have not won since 2004, it’s a seemingly difficult prospect for Hasenhuttl at this time of trouble.

Moreover, Southampton have conceded a goal in each of their last 18 away games, a record the manager would love to change on Saturday.
